Namco Bandai Launches Free ‘Dark Souls II: Into The Light’ Digital Comic On Facebook

The name of the game in licensed video game comics used to always mean going through a proper comics publisher, but following the success of its in-house webcomics effort ShiftyLook, Namco Bandai is once again going its own way with the launch of its Dark Souls II digital comic. Debuting yesterday with the first of what will be weekly page uploads on the Dark Souls Facebook page, “Dark Souls II: Into the Light” is coordinated by Namco Bandai Games Europe and From Software, and written by Rob Williams (Cla$$war) and Andi Ewington (45) with art by Simon Coleby (2000 AD), lettering by Troy Peteri (Artifacts) and colors by Len O’Grady (The Zaucer of Zilk).

Based on the Dark Souls II video game, which debuts March 14 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (and later, PC), Into The Light will run for at least 20 pages and tell a story within the world of the game rather than serve as a direct adaptation or something that supplies spoilers. The comic is the brainchild of Ewington, who pitched the concept to Namco Bandai after hearing about it at his day job as a game designer at Lick Creative. Apparently, unlike playing the Dark Souls games, reading this story will not involve dying again and again and again and again and again.

You can see Namco Bandai’s preview images below, and read the first installment on Facebook.
